Hi all,

my first released map is online...

I'd be glad to receive some comments and advices, as I'll soon be releasing another map!

PS: thank you Sergio, for your patience ;) my mailbox can be quite tricky sometimes ;p

good job on that level i liked playing it lol you making any others cause id be interested in beta testing it :rofl:

Glad to hear it! Thanks :)

I'm indeed working on a new map, which looks fun for now ;)
It's a remake of the Death Star Compactor/Compressor (I don't know which word is best in english to say that).

A better one than the one you can see in the FFA death star official map of course (I don't pretend to make better maps than a pro, I just mean than that's the only room of my map, so I worked more on it ;)).

If you want to beta-test it, there's already a working version, just send me an e-mail to jeggor@ifrance.com and I'll send it to you!

For those who have tried it, I'd like to ask a few questions...

1/ The map is meant to be dark (that's how I see Nar Shaddaa), but do you think it is TOO dark?

2/ Bots are supported, but are you satisfied with their behaviour? A map surrounded by void is quite hard to make bot compatible... Did I manage to make something convincing?

3/ Do you like when a map contains force boon and dark/light surge? (note that I placed theses items in dangerous places to avoid players to use them on every fight)

4/ Did you have any fun fight on the glass hexagon under the landing platform? (I did with my beta-tester ;))

5/ Do you like duel maps with deadly falls? (with NF that's not a problem, but perhaps some people prefer Force duels and dislike being pushed too often in the void :))

6/ About my incoming Death Star map... Could you tell me which title is correct?
(a) Death Star Compressor (don't know if this word exists in english)
(b) Death Star Compactor (I think I saw this word in Raven textures)
(c) other suggestion?

compactor is a better choice of wording

In the film, its usually referred to as the 'garbage masher', as in...

LUKE: "Shut down all the garbage mashers on the detention level!"

Thanks a lot!

I've only seen the french version so I was wondering about the exact wording...

If "Death Star Garbage Masher" fits in the map selection window, I'll put that.... And I'll put "Death Star Compactor" in the opposite case.

Thanks again guys :)

Oh... but... As I think about it, didn't you mean "smasher" instead of "masher"? I can't find the word "masher" in my english dictionnary.

No, it's definitely masher! :D

One who, or that which, mashes; a machine for making mash.

A soft pulpy mixture or mass.
A crushing or grinding.

Ok, I tested this title and it seems to fit well on the map selection screen.
Thanks for your precision :)
